See Fair Work Act 2009 sections 545, 546 and 570
The Federal Court or the Federal Circuit and Family Court may make any order the court considers appropriate if the court is satisfied that a person has contravened, or proposes to contravene, a civil remedy provision (such as section 352, which prohibits an employee being dismissed because of a temporary absence from work due to illness or injury).
Orders the Federal Court or Federal Circuit and Family Court may make include the following:
- an order granting an injunction, or interim injunction, to prevent, stop or remedy the effects of a contravention
- an order awarding compensation for loss that a person has suffered because of the contravention (which can include interest), or
- an order for reinstatement of a person.
